Episode 219

TODAY’S READING:

11 While the women were on their way, some of the guards went into the city and reported to the chief priest everything that had happened. 12 When the chief priests had met with the elders and devised a plan, they gave the soldiers a large sum of money, 13 telling them, “You are to say, ‘His disciples came during the night and stole him away while we were asleep.’ 14 If this report gets to the governor, we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble.” 15 So, the soldiers took the money and did as they were instructed. And this story has been widely circulated among the Jews to this very day.

Matthew 28:11-15

 

Technically I would imagine the story we read yesterday was just after the verses from today. Yesterday we read the two men leaving the city already knew the story of Jesus’ missing body.

 

So this would have been how the story started to spread. What really amazed me was how they paid a lot of money to cover up the greatest miracle that had ever and will ever occur, and that story is still being said today.

 

His resurrection was a miracle, and the world will go to great lengths to convince you that it wasn’t. Let me encourage you, keep the faith. His story, your testimony, holds so much power.

 

When people try and cover up your miracles, don’t let them. When you want to cover up your own miracle, don’t give in to fear. Share your story louder. Be confident in what He has done for you. Share it with others, continue to spread the light and the love of Jesus. 

 

PRAYER

Father God, thank you for another beautiful day and a start to a new month. Thank you for a community that continues to grow. Thank you for this Holy Week. Thank you for teaching us; thank you for performing miracles on our behalf. We promise to share your love with those around us. It is in your Holy name that we pray, AMEN!

Hi, I'm Ali.
I want to encourage you on your faith journey!

I'm the coffee obsessed baker from Miami, FL who got too busy to find time to read scripture everyday. I knew my life was better with Jesus and I knew I wasn't the only one struggling with finding alone time with God every morning, so I put my dreams of opening a bakery aside and set out to produce a five minute daily devotional. What first started as an email chain, has now flourished into a beautiful community and I am so happy you are here!

MY TESTIMONY

We are a faith based community in pursuit of daily prayer. All it takes is five minutes - we know you're busy but He loves you still.
